We’re nearly into the third quarter of the 2020 NFL season. Our fantasy football leagues are officially entering crunch time with the playoffs on the horizon. The waiver wire continues to evolve, offering options to improve our rosters ahead of the most important part of the campaign

Here are the most intriguing names on fantasy football waiver wires ahead of Week 11.

RB J.D. McKissic, Washington Football Team — 69% rostered

McKissic won’t be available in most leagues, but he’s a borderline RB1 so long as Alex Smith continues to start games at the quarterback position. I previously suggested going all out to add McKissic prior to this week’s slate, and he paid off in a big way for those that spent their available free-agent acquisition budget.

McKissic totaled 15 targets in Week 10, leading the running back position. Seven of those were pulled in for 43 yards receiving, which was good for an RB8 finish alongside teammate Antonio Gibson, who finished inside the top five at the running back position.

McKissic may not have rushing or touchdown upside, but his 69% snap share and his 29% target share are both desirable, particularly the latter number, which is impressive for any running back.

RB Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts — 41% rostered

Hines should be owned at a much higher rate due to his involvement within the Colts’ passing game. Since Week 5, Hines has seen only a 36% snap share (second to Jonathan Taylor), but he’s looked like a decent runner while offering an abundance of value in the receiving game. Hines’ receiving chops are why he’s listed here, and his 24 targets (ranks second on the team) and three receiving touchdowns (first) both rank highly among the Colts’ weapons dating back to Week 5.
